Biological_Viewfinder: Another Panasonic getting another amazing review.

I'll never buy it.

I know better. I've owned 4 Panasonic cameras, a couple of TVs, and some other crap from that company. NONE OF IT WAS AS GOOD AS OTHER BRANDS. NONE OF IT!

Joker??

SulfurousBeast: Anyone think "made in china" LX100 is a dampener or even a deal breaker? Sort of this premium compact losing its cachet? Wonder where the Typ109 is made, dont want a made in China Leica, that's me though... But guess a lot of you out there thnking along the same lines...?

Nowadays one could not stay away from Made in China products and as long as the ISO Quality control is there with bench marking China products are NO problems IMHO

SteveY80: I wish Panasonic had included a tilt screen. I'm looking to replace my Nikon 1 and that would have made this an easy choice.

As it is, it'll be very hard to decide between this, an RX100III, or one of the smaller interchangeable lens M4/3 cameras.

The manual shutter speed and aperture controls on this camera make it a very tempting prospect even with that big omission.

I have ordered one

Mike FL: So far, Canon G7X has much higher Pre-order sales ranking# than LX100.

Of Course, both are way behind RX100-3.

Quality not quantity it counts

In reply to:

CuriousExistence: I have a Sony RX100, and I use the built-in flash in two cases: for a very effective bounce flash for indoor portraits, and a fill flash at the beach. In both scenarios it works wonderfully.

I'm big into target demographics for devices, and I'm confused on Panasonic's approach to the LX100. The audience for a compact all-in-one camera like this are people who don't want to carry around extra gear that they would have to with an ILC. Are they even going to use a hot shoe? Will they want to carry around a detachable flash?

It seems like Panasonic determined that the only way they could stand apart from Sony in this market segment was to have a larger sensor and brighter lens, but they were forced to leave out features that are important to compact users - a flash and potentially an ND filter.

The G7X seems like it has more of the features that single-camera compact users want integrated.

Those who complained about built in flash were the people who never shoot or experience with LX7.I used LX3 and LX7.Flash used i would say less than 5% of my shots with both.Flash is prohibited in museums /exhibits and public places and LX7 is a joy to use in low light/macro/museum and restaurants. It is a nuisance to use flash photography in such places where people were frown upon you with no respect to the community and selfishness. People keep complaining the product even before the release/experience and actual usage and to further evaluate the outcomeof the shots without flash in LX100

In reply to:

Cal22: The LX100 aims at people who want an all-in-one solution. And the camera has a lot to like. I like especially the full manual control with control dials on the top plate for your right hand and a ring at the lens' mount for your left. And the camera body is big enough to making it not fiddly.

What I don't like: The camera has no tilting rear screen and no tilting EVF either. How to shoot from ground level? And a bundled flash should come up with more options than a built-in flash can provide; whether Panasonic will deliver in this respect, we may doubt until now.

The lens' zoom range is a little limited. Let's hope the image quality lives up to the name Leica!

I have been shooting WITHOUT tilting screen for many years WITHOUT any problems.It is not an issue but desirable in certain situations,IF other photographers can do it you can do it too.or you have to learn how to do it

In reply to:

Boss of Sony: WHY IS THIS CAMERA BIG NEWS? RICOH RELEASED A FULLY POCKETABLE CAMERA WITH AN !!!APS-C!!!! SIZED SENSOR 2 YEARS AGO (RICOH GR). THE ONLY THING THIS PANASONIC HAS OVER THE GR IS THE 4K VIDEO AND AN EVF. WHO CARES? NOBODY HAS 4K TVs. PLUS IT HAS BEEN PROVEN THAT FROM A NORMAL VIEWING DISTANCE, THERE IS NO VISIBLE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN 4K TV AND 1080P TV, so anybody who buys a 4k TV is mad. Most photographers are not interested in taking 4k video anyway, unless they want to make documentaries, in which case, who cares whether you have a pocketable camera or not.

And NO leica glass F1.7

Kirppu: I don't think that battery size (2600mAh) is enough for photographic device that also has android running at the same time. Going to drain it self empty very quickly while shooting and uploading your photos to the social media as the selfie snapshotters tend to do.

webber15: Peevee,,they are leica lenses,,maybe made by someone else but with leica money and leica's spec,,,so,,they are leica lenses...

May be on lumixs' leica but on leica cameras it is designed and developed by LEICA. We are talking about Leica type 109 not the Lumix 100(the same with leica type 109) except price and the famous red dot with same specs
